The Croppie went looking for the crop circle commissioned to promote singer Lorde’s latest album. On land belonging to Weir Farm, the circle is not the easiest to spot from The Ridgeway, an ancient trackway that runs along the top of Hackpen Hill between Barbury Castle and Avebury.

The circle’s shadowy presence is related to its careful placement. It has been sited close to two lines of trees, both of which do a reasonable job of concealing it from eyes on the hilltop. Please remember though that Farmer Hussey does not particularly want visitors to this circle. Luckily, The Croppie got away with it.

If you’re an experienced croppie you’ll appreciate the barley crop shown in these photos. Unfortunately, it was smothered with pollen and The Croppie is still paying the price…
